Financial Advisor Program (FAP)
ECCF’s Financial Advisor Program is a win-win for you and your clients. Your clients can utilize our charitable funds to support the causes they care about while you continue to manage their charitable assets.
How it works:
The FAP is available for donors who establish a fund of $100,000 or more with ECCF, who want to utilize the investment management services of their preferred advisor. At the donor’s request, and upon approval through our application process, advisors will manage the investment of charitable assets (in alignment with your client’s preferences and within ECCF’s Investment Policy) and we will provide charitable fund administration and philanthropic services.
Professional Advisor Committee (PAC)
The Professional Advisor Committee (PAC) advocates for and advises ECCF as we cultivate and grow trusted relationships with advisors in Essex County. The PAC also shares ideas and experiences with charitable giving, exchanges resources, and actively helps ECCF establish new relationships with financial advisors, tax professionals, and estate planning attorneys who serve clients in Essex County.
